A handful of Korea’s major institutional investors, including Allianz Life, plan to invest about 96 billion won in Apple’s building in Silicon Valley. According to industry sources on March 13, the nation’s four major institutional investors, including Allianz Life, decided to invest $83 million in “410-430 North Mary Avenue” located in Sunnyvale.
They will make the investment through a real estate fund which will be created in mid-March by Koramco Fund, a specialist in operation of real estate funds. With a maturity of five years, the fund would generate an annual yield of 4.58 percent.
America’s real estate investment firm Tristar Capital acquired the building from Rockwood Capital for US$290.7 million last month.
The office building is now used 100 percent by Apple Inc. It is a complex consisting of three three-story buildings, with a total floor space of about 60,000 square meters. Built as Boeing’s office building in 1989, it was renovated during the 2008-2010 period.
